This is a make from way back in May that has been so useful and worn so much that I just had to get around to doing a blog post about it.
There’s nothing particularly special about the pattern, other than the fact that it is a Vogue original which has been my favourite pattern brand since the Eighties.
The ‘cocoon’ shape has rather a daring low neckline, short sleeves and the length falls to the knee – perfect to show off my best bits (boobs, arms and legs) and skim over my non-existent waistline.
It also features pockets in the side seams, which are a must for me.
Here it is at Desert Springs in Spain in May.
Sewing 100+ name tags into school uniform doesn’t count, does it?!
